I Ain't Superficial

I'm nonconforming, impulsive, expressive, romantic, intuitive, sensitive, and emotional.

Well, according to this thing I am.

And weirdly enough, it seems to know exactly what I should be doing with my life just by the way I clicked on a bunch of colored squares.

Veronica and our friend Marcus jumped down my throat when he came to visit at Halloween and I unabashedly proclaimed that yes, looks, among other things, do matter, and yes, I’m picky.

I'll spare you the specifics.

Evidently they require a longer time to figure out whether or not to throw back a fish. Me? Not so much. It’s either there, or it ain’t, and if it ain’t, well, I’m not wasting my time and you shouldn’t waste yours.

I’m not forcing the ball to T.O. when Witten’s wide open in the end zone, so to speak. I happen to be a fervent supporter of check downs. Lots and lots of check downs.

Anyway, my obsession with aesthetics has a valuable place in society. See:

Fields of interest are art, drama, music, and writing or places where they can express, assemble, or implement creative ideas.

  • 2nd Best Occupational Category

    You're a RESEARCHER

    Key Words:
    Independent, Self-Motivated, Reserved, Introspective, Analytical, and Curious

    These investigative types gather information, analyze and interpret data, and inquire to uncover new facts. They have a strong scientific orientation, enjoy academic or research environments and prefer self-reliant jobs. Dislikes are group projects, selling, and repetitive activities.

But how the hell did they figure this out by which squares I clicked first? Especially the bit about group projects, which I detest.

Weird. What does yours say?

I'm mad because all of the journalists, it seems, are Creators. I'm one and T. Black is as well.

Quietly though, it kinda felt like validation. Like, maybe I am doing the right thing if a random quiz about color preference tells me I should be a journalist. Eh. Whatever.
